japonisme: lichts camera pattern

lichts camera pattern

(via) (via)

the prints are old and the wallpapers are new, then, as now, the designs, the colors wake us, warm us, cheer us and make us glad.

(artwork clockwise: maxfield parrish, marcel poncin, william merritt chase, and utamaro. wallpapers left to right tradeworth, ritva kronlund, romo, and two from fromental. please recognize that the colors here may be just plain darn wrong.)

Thank you for the comment you left on my blog :)
You would love this shop http://www.cherryblossom.co.nz/
It's in a beautiful old building and I love going there to look at the washi papers, fabrics, kimonos etc.
